I’m on vacation this week. I brought the laptop with us though, so there’s THAT. Figured if anything there would be some early morning work to curate old posts and make new Pinterest pins.

In summary, a white supremacist rally turned violent when a car intentionally drove into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing Heather D. Heyer. State troopers Lt.

After more than twenty years in the corporate work force, I’ve collected a healthy share of war stories and water cooler anecdotes. Honestly, it didn’t take much convincing for me to hop on the early retirement bandwagon back in 2014. When you see what a company can do to its […] The post Man Versus Cube: Leaving a Job on YOUR Terms appeared first on abandoned cubicle. ...

Budgets are a concept I still struggle with. Funny. A personally finance blogger shouldn’t have any qualms over budgets. And yet I read from the pros about the importance of NOT budgeting, because if you do, you’re basically creating categories of expense where it’s okay to spend money. I’m curious […] The post The Simple Spreadsheet That Saves You Thousands appeared first on abandoned cubicle. ...

Are all BMW drivers assholes? Let’s see if we can answer that profound question in a special Tuesday Rant, shall we? Oh, and disclaimer, I hate driving. I’d prefer to be riding my bike, but you know what, last night was softball night, and the team needed me there on time. Let’s just call this a scientific observation experiment.. So I’m on my way to the play fields, working my way ...

This is the first in a new series that I hope to keep going each and every Friday. See, getting up at 5AM every day has it’s perks. No more excuses for not producing high quality, well-crafted content for our Abandoneer readers! To be clear, I define “Rich People” in the title as those who have wealth of time and work constantly to groom away those pesky regrets we talked ...

Today’s short and sweet post carries a rather simple premise. The idea behind an early retirement isn’t built on the fantasy of amassing stockpiles of cash or multiples of millions. For most of us whom are seeking an early exit from the office, there’s some triggering event that compels us to Google search terms like, “Help! I need to get out of this place before I go crazy!
